Solving Multi-Core Design Challenges With Safety Support

The key challenges in developing multi-core ASICs include managing complexity, power optimization, inter-core communication, synchronization, verification, testing, and performance optimization while ensuring scalability, reliability, and integration ease.

Ncore™ solves these challenges with a production-proven, highly configurable, and efficient coherent NoC interconnect IP solution. Ncore offers unique value by being engineered to support ISO 26262 designs that, once certified, will ensure reliable operation in safety-critical applications with functional safety compliance.

The combined use of Ncore IP and FlexNoC IP in an ASIC design delivers unparalleled performance optimization, scalability, and system integration, enabling robust cache coherence, efficient communication, and flexibility, leading to market differentiation and accelerated time-to-market.

Ncore Product Option

functional safety option

Resilience: FuSa Option

  • ISO 26262 Functional Safety (FuSa)
  • Multi-ASIL support

We chose the Arteris Ncore cache coherent interconnect because of its unique proxy caches and their ability to underpin high-performance, low power, cache coherent clusters of our unique AI accelerators. And with our prior experience using FlexNoC and the FlexNoC Resilience Packages for functional safety, we trust Arteris to be the highest performing and safest choice for ISO 26262-compliant NoC.
